Michael Is in Orchestra

Michael is loving Middle School. One of his favorite things is the viola lessons and orchestra. He practices everyday without me asking... I'm so proud of him!!

Last Tuesday he had his first orchestra performance. He did great!! It was very impressive to me that after only one month these kids played so in tune, synchronized and so cute. Good job!

Jack and the "Dutchy"

I've been going walking with Jack in the mornings. Once a week we go visit the ducks at the pond to feed them our saved bread ends. Jack calls them "Dutchy." It's funny that whenever I give him a piece of bread to feed the ducks, he eats them. Ah if babies could stay little forever! :-)

Marco thinks I should let him call... :-)
